Re: 98 Ranger beeping
the system will beep when the bulb doesn't function in the cluster. so if it works sometimes, i would say the bulb is loose.
the next time it beeps, or flashes, count the number of times it beeps or flashes. it should be a two digit code. IE, flashes 2 times, short pause, then 7 times, long pause, then repeats would be a 2-7 code. same with the beeping.
